From The Secret Book of John (Apocryphon of John)
I (Yahshua) entered their prison
The body (physical body) is that prison
I (Yahshua) cried out:
“Anyone who hears,
Rise up from your deep sleep!”
And the sleeping one awoke and wept
Wiping bitter tears saying
“Who calls me?”
“Where has my hope come from
As I lie in the depths of this prison?”
Raising my head up to heaven, I responded, “I hear your voice O’ Father! Deep within my soul I have heard you. You have awakened me O’ Father. Oh how the light of my Father has descended upon me in this dark world. The light of your heavens has finally reached me. In darkness I have suffered and you have heard my cries. I know I am not alone even though it seems this way at times. I now understand that this physical body is a prison and that I have been deceived by the god of this world. The truth has been hidden and the Father’s light will reveal all truth in due time. I was blind but now I see, the veil is being lifted.
I knocked on the door of heaven and you opened the door and invited me in. I have so many questions about the creation story, how the human body was created, how we descended to the earth into our physical body and the list goes on and on. I just want to know the truth about the creation of this world. I want to know more of our Heavenly Father and the universe. It’s been rough to understand all that has happened on this earth. Truly it is a battle between good and evil. It’s sad to know that false gods have ruled over us and have kept us in bondage for thousands and thousands of years.
I have cried so many times yet I have heard your voice in the midst of my suffering. In despair I have asked, “Why me Father? Why do I continue to suffer in this body? Your response, “This physical body is a prison to which you have descended into.” The world you live is an imperfect world and the body you dwell in is an imperfect body.
